Apple are a joke for gaming

They are not serious says Valve

 

Valve CEO Gabe Newell said that anyone hoping that Apple could be a gaming refuge away from Microsoft is dreaming. He said that Apple are not serious about gaming and simply will not talk sensibly.

In an interview with Kikizo, Newell said that when his company shows up at Apple there are loads of people there who tell him that gaming is important. He tells them three things that Apple could do to make that happen and they promise to look at it. Nothing happens and then a new bunch of people show up and make the same sorts of promises.

"They seem to think that they want to do gaming, but there's never any follow through on any of the things they say they're going to do. That makes it hard to be excited about doing games for their platforms," he said. Newell said that Apple have never taken gaming seriously and therefore there is no Apple gaming market there to speak of.

He said that there was no likelyhood that Apple would get its act together enough to build a much rumoured gaming console. He thinks it is odd given that the Mac can do a lot of things really well compared to a Vista PC, but there are no games.
